Women With Honey On Their Faces - Sensual, Sexy or Weird?

German artist Mike Dargas has created a beautifully sensual series of giant hyperrealistic oil-on-canvas portraits that feature women with different shades of honey running down their faces. Formerly a tattoo artist, Dargas turned to oils after being inspired by such artists as Dali, Caravaggio, and HR Giger. Mike-Dargas His works show the picture of people, painted realistically in oil on canvas. The precise technique gives, like a photography, a snapshot of the moment. The artist studies his motifs with such intensity, that each portrait pictures a profile of increasing intimate closeness. Mike finds his models in his everyday life and is not limited on certain types. He portrays young and old, beautiful and dark, fragile and strong people. They are lost in thoughts, show inner conflicts or transmit a unique and sometimes even holy calmness.

What are your thoughts on this art? Deep and intimate / sensual and erotic or thinly veiled pornography? It's always amazing how different people will interpret an image - particularly when it depicts the concept of beauty. 6bPpSbxgPGInFgcTQCG2QafiQYc-13GsDguSJiWdDyE We find this interesting because our fitness photos are often interpreted in very different ways as well - and thats fine - people see what they see. So what do you think we are looking at here? H/T: laughingsquid.com Artist website: http://www.mikedargas.com/#art
